Current update on travel from Denmark to UK
As recently announced, passenger planes and ships travelling directly from Denmark, and accompanied freight, will no longer be able to land or dock at the English ports. This is to prevent the potential spread of a variant strain of coronavirus.
The government yesterday implemented immigration powers which meant all non-British nationals or resident travellers who had been in or through Denmark in the last 14 days will now be denied entry upon arrival.
Denmark was removed from the UK’s travel corridors list on Friday 06 November 2020. Non-British or resident visitors who had come from or through Denmark were banned from arriving in the UK from 4am on Saturday 07 November 2020. Anyone who has arrived within the last 2 weeks now needs to self-isolate along with their households for 14 days.
Yesterday the Home Office announced they would step up Border Force presence to ensure that those arriving to the UK from Denmark were compliant with the new restrictions.
The travel ban and expanded self-isolation requirements will be reviewed after 7 days. Most up to date information can be found at: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/coronavirus-covid-19-travel-corridors
We will review this regularly and update you of any changes.
